Agrilus sulcicollis (Coleoptera: Buprestidae), a new alien species in North America

  • Eduard Jendek (a1) and Vasily V. Grebennikov (a1)
Abstract

The European oak borer, Agrilus sulcicollis Lacordaire, a newly detected alien species in Canada, is reported from southern Ontario. This species is illustrated and diagnosed to facilitate its recognition among other North American species of Agrilus Curtis. Data are provided on its phylogenetic affinities, host plants, native distribution, and all North American records known to date. The other eight non-native Agrilus species known in North America (A. cuprescens (Ménétriés), A. cyanescens Ratzeburg, A. derasofasciatus Lacordaire, A. hyperici (Creutzer), A. pilosovittatus Saunders, A. planipennis Fairmaire, A. sinuatus (Olivier), and A. subrobustus Saunders) are briefly discussed.

L’agrile européen du chêne, Agrilus sulcicollis Lacordaire, une espèce étrangère retrouvée récemment au Canada, est signalé dans le sud de l’Ontario. Nous présentons des illustrations et des diagnoses pour faciliter son identification parmi les autres Agrilus Curtis d’Amérique du Nord. Nous fournissons aussi des informations sur ses affinités phylogénétiques, ses plantes hôtes, sa répartition d’origine et l’ensemble des récoltes connues à ce jour en Amérique du Nord. Nous discutons brièvement des huit autres espèces non indigènes d’Agrilus retrouvées en Amérique du Nord (A. cuprescens (Ménétriés), A. cyanescens Ratzeburg, A. derasofasciatus Lacordaire, A. hyperici (Creutzer), A. pilosovittatus Saunders, A. planipennis Fairmaire, A. sinuatus (Olivier) et A. subrobustus Saunders).
